The evidence for legislative controls on sunbeds.
The evidence to introduce legislative controls on sunbeds is very strong. The Committee on Medical Aspects of Radiation in the Environment (COMARE), a UK Expert Committee, published a report in June 2009.
One of its main recommendations was to ban people under the age of 18 from using these devices. The Welsh Assembly’s Health, Wellbeing and Local Government Committee Report of its inquiry into ‘the use and regulation of sunbeds in Wales’ made similar recommendations to those made by COMARE.
The International Agency on Research into Cancer has raised sunbeds into its highest classification category as "carcinogenic to humans".
On 8 April 2011, a ban on businesses allowing under-18s to use sunbeds on their premises came into force in Wales and England through the introduction of the Sunbeds (Regulation) Act 2010.
The Sunbeds (Regulation) Act 2010 (Wales) Regulations 2011 came into force on Monday 31 October 2011 adding further controls on sunbed use in Wales.
Though this legislation the Welsh Government has provided local authorities the tools they need in order to protect children and adult sunbed users in Wales . Local authorities are responsible for enforcing the Regulations on sunbed premises.
